Is it tune-up time?

Periodic tune-ups can bring more power back to your Sonata’s engine. Tune-ups give your engine a boost in efficiency, so you can enjoy improved fuel economy and lower emissions. When you follow the guidelines specified by Hyundai for your vehicle’s tune-up schedule, you invest in your Sonata's long-term health and engine performance.

1996 Hyundai Sonata Engine Tune-Up Q&A

  • When should Hyundai Sonata spark plugs be replaced? Replace spark plugs on time or about every 30,000 miles or so. Spark plugs are small but mighty. The spark of electricity that the plug emits across a small gap creates the ignition for the combustion needed to start your car. Without that spark, your car won't start.
  • What do I do if I see a pool of liquid under my Hyundai Sonata? Puddles could indicate that your vehicle is leaking coolant, oil, or brake fluid. Ignoring these leaks can lead to permanent engine damage, so address these symptoms ASAP with a tune-up service.
  • Are some driving habits better for my Hyundai Sonata engine than others? Hard starts and stops put extra wear and tear on engine components. Smooth, gradual starts and stops, on the other hand, are a great way to help your engine run better. They can also help maximize your fuel economy.
